How DoorDash is celebrating Pride Month 2023

At DoorDash, we are proud to offer an inclusive environment, where everyone can be their true, authentic selves. As part of our efforts to create a workplace that engages people of all backgrounds while fostering an environment of diversity, equity, and inclusion, our Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) play a vital role in building and driving the culture that our people experience.

This June, alongside our Pride@ ERG, we’re celebrating and acknowledging Pride Month at DoorDash through a mixture of in-person and virtual events. We’re hosting Drag Bingo, a Sip and Slay event dedicated to educating attendees on queer history while making LGBTQ+ inspired libations, a day of music reflecting on Pride anthems, a trivia competition, and a panel discussion around being LGBTQ+ in leadership.

Through a month-long writing event in partnership with Point of Pride, our employees will dedicate letters to support the trans community. We’ll have a dedicated virtual event for the letter writing exercise, with in-person drop boxes in our office hubs in Denver, San Francisco, Phoenix, and New York. Point of Pride is a nonprofit dedicated to providing financial aid and direct support to trans people in need of health and wellness care.

In celebration of Pride Month, we’ve also partnered with four national organizations through our Employee Donation Matching program to support the LGBTQ+ community. Employees can contribute matched donations to the following:

  • Human Rights Campaign, which works to improve the lives of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) people by increasing understanding and encouraging the adoption of LGBTQ-inclusive policies and practices
  • LGBTQ Victory Institute, which works to increase the number of LGBTQ people in public office and to provide programming, service and other support to help ensure their success.
  • Point of Pride, which is a volunteer-operated non-profit that provides financial aid and direct support to transgender folks in need of health and wellness care.
  • The Trevor Project, which is the leading and only accredited national organization providing crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning (LGBTQ) young people under the age of 25.


The celebration will continue in our DoorDash DashMarts across the country, which will proudly sell CoolHaus branded Love Out Loud items.

Making room at the table is an everyday commitment at DoorDash, and we’re proud to continue to count LGBTQ+ people as our friends, colleagues, and family members.

Our efforts to create a workplace where everyone feels welcomed, supported, and valued is one of the reasons we were recently recognized as one of America’s Greatest Workplaces 2023 by Newsweek.
